PCI Security Standards
PCI and the Data Security Standards (DSS), establish protocols for protection of cardholder data, mandating how card numbers and expiration dates must be protected. This is known as PCI Security.
The Basics of PCI Compliance and Validation Regulations
These regulations apply to financial institutions, Internet vendors and all e-commerce and retail merchants. The rules spell out what security measures must be taken to protect the private information of employers and employees during any transactions occurring with the use of a credit/debit card. They also require certain auditing procedures. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is used by all card brands to assure the security of the data gathered while an employee is making a transaction at a bank or participating vendor.
There are six categories of PCI compliance security standards.
